The sons and brothers are delighted to announce a special benefit concert for Abundant Life Pregnancy and Family Resource Center on May 20 at 6 p.m. at the Living Stone Calvary Chapel in Canon City.
Abundant Life, formerly known as Canon City Pregnancy Center, was established in 1984 by a small group of people who recognized a need in our community and decided to step in to help meet that need. Today the people of Canon City Pregnancy Center are blessed to continue the
legacy that began 38 years ago. They provide pregnancy tests, ongoing support and materials
items for a baby once born. They offer educational classes for the whole family, with
an incentive to earn money to purchase eligible items for their family
by the pregnancy center. They have trained peer coaches to conduct admissions and provide
ongoing family support, including referrals to other agencies and nonprofits in the area. This
demonstrates community collaboration to their customers, which means a lot.
More than anything else, they meet people where they need to be, with grace, love & structured support. This is why the pregnancy center has returned to its roots and now operates under the original name Abundant Life. When you see the AL with the teal and purple legs, that’s Canon City Pregnancy Center.
“We just want people to know that their resources don’t stop when the baby is born. Abundant life is for everyone! said Stacy Swagger, director of Abundant Life.
Sons and Brothers is made up of the Wolking brothers, Mike, Aaron and Joe. The boys had fun
audiences with their unique blend of American musical styles for over 20 years. Now the
group focuses on bringing the Gospel message to people through music.
“Our mission is to perform Gospel music and distribute it,” said Aaron Wolking. “We’re pretty much ready to get the music and the message out to just about anyone who’s willing to listen.”
This special concert is a great opportunity for the community to come together and support
an organization that offers so much to so many people in our region. Admission is free but
donations are encouraged. The seats in the amphitheater of the Living Stone Calvary Chapel are
first come, first served; they also encourage you to bring your favorite travel chair.
